As we discussed in a previous blog, there are two different classifications of egg donations: open and anonymous donations. For the most part, Chicago egg donation facilities carry out open donations when the recipient has someone specific in mind to help them grow their families, like a sister or a cousin. In an anonymous donation, the recipients have access to your basic information, but cannot be in direct contact with you during the process. However, not every country in the world handles egg donation the same way. In Australia, donors select their recipients (the other way around from the United States).
